THE TOTAL BENT

Developed at The Public Theater, the legendary incubator that spawned Hamilton and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, The Total Bent has been hailed by the New York Times as “blazingly entertaining with a sensational score which blends elements of the blues, gospel, funk and throbbing guitar-driven rock; an ecstatic combination of revival meeting and rock concert.” This companion album features twenty-seven songs from the acclaimed production performed by Stew & The Negro Problem.

NOTES OF A NATIVE SONG

Defying genres and expectations, the explosive score and galvanizing lyrics of Notes of a Native Song explore the darker and more complicated aspects of inspirational literary rock star James Baldwin’s life and work. Combining Stew’s incisive, hilarious, and harrowing storytelling with Jazz, blues riffs, and driving rock, the eleven tracks featured on this new recording become “meditations on Baldwin’s themes—of the comfort of exile, of the anger and pain that being black in America can inspire, of work that blends myth, mystery and imagined history.” (The New York Times).
